Speaking at a farm in Shamva on Saturday during birthday celebrations for her sister, Mrs Junior Gumbochuma who turned 60, Amai Mugabe said young people were bound to be naughty at some point whether they were the President’s children or not.
“Sometimes we are tempted even through our children. Manzwa mukomana (Mr Moses Gumbochuma) anga achitaura pano kuti ndaiita misikanzwa. Vashoma vanhu vanotaura vachidaro. Vana vanoita misikanzwa. All is not lost, you can still pick yourself up, wotanga woita chikoro zvakare. Iko zvino kwaane mweya inobata vana vedu. Mweya wekunwa, madrugs, and kuda kuita zvinhu zvisiri zvezera ravo. Zvese izvozvo if you give up, ndiani anozvigadzirisa? Ana mai vazhinji vakashinga, tine moyo minyoro. Izvezvi ndikati simuka utaure zvemwana wako ka, madzimai tingaite rufu pano madzimai achingochema pano,” she said.
